Sadly though, it's been reported that Jesse Spencer, who played Matthew Casey and officially bowed out of the show in October 2021 before making a guest appearance in the season ten finale, will not be back.

While he was happy to reprise his role for his character's best friend's nuptials, it appears that he has no plans to return next season. In fact, he has even landed a role in a new Disney+ series, which will see him return to his native Australia.
